. for the first time, foreign policy is now part of this discussion that we're having. i've been traveling all over. this tragedy turned into a deboch expel massive cover-up or massive incompetence in libya is having an effect on the voter because of their view of the commander in chief. and it is now the worst cover-up or incompetence that i have ever observed in my life. >> schieffer: let me get to that in a second. let me just ask you what you said there. are you saying the president, should he come off the campaign trial now and devote himself to directing storm-relief efforts and that sort of thing? >> i'm sure he will. at least for a period of time i'm sure that the president will. we all remember new orleans. >> schieffer: what about-- what about what you just said about libya? are you saying now that this was a deliberate cover-up coming out of the libya, that in fact this was not what the administration said it was, but something else entirely, and that, i guess, if it was a cover-up, are you saying they did it for political reasons? >> i don't know if it's either cover-up or gross--
foreign policy to make it more multilateral, part of what he calls a broader shift. aft a dade in whi we fought two wars that cost us dearly, in blood and treasure, the united states is turning our attention to the vast potential of the asia-pacific region. >> reporter: obama turned his attention at home to pushing through health care reform, something president after president had tried to do. he succeeded with what became known as obama care, the most significant overhaul since medicare and medicaid in the 1960s. he pushed to shore up banks aftethe financial crisis. congress passed legislation two years ago imposing stricter regulations on financial institutions and giving more protection to customers. reforming the nation's finances has proved more difficult. republicans criticize obama for the mounting national debt, and they say the unemployment rate, 7.8%, is unacceptably high. >> the latest poll suggests the candidates are running close, but they were taken before the storm hit shore. earlier gene otani spoke about obama's successes and his failures. >> the president is not the fi
. two new things. one is foreign policy magazine has a new article out. it's quite a long article. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another
the clown campaign? mitt romney spends the final debate agreeing with much of obama's foreign policy. >> i supported that entirely and feel the president was right. i want to underscore the same president the president made. i felt the same as the president did. >> i think romney's leaning obama. [ laughter ] >> but where on earth is the serious press coverage of their exchanges on libya, on afghanistan, on terrorism? >>> plus, obama's media blitz from brian williams to jay leno to mtv. >> what are you most worried about? malia getting a driver's license, malia going out on a date, or malia being on facebook? >> i worry about facebook right now even just for security reasons. you know, she doesn't have a facebook page. >> are the media giving the president a friendly platform? i'm howard kurtz, and this is "reliable sources." >>> did you know that mitt romney engages in spraytanning before major events? that is what buzz feed is reporting and "mass conjecture" in social media despite a denial from the romney campaign. this is ephemeral stuff that's been coloring the campaign challenge, a c
of ideas as to how to cast foreign policy in response to 9/11, such as invading iraq and people were actually advocating this well before we had the 9/11 terrorist attacks. making regime change in iraq the official policy of federal government actually occurred during the clinton administration when the iraq liberation act was passed in 1998 and signed into law by president clinton and supported by many republicans in congress. it had bipartisan support. vice president gore was a supporter, that is why i am not completely convinced that that is a counterfactual point. we have a lot of interest and people were casting around, trying to find solutions. and i do think the initialization of afghanistan was correct, whether that means we need to be there for 10 years or until afghanistan becomes connecticut, that is another matter entirely. but i think the initial strikes against those were necessary and just. but then to go out and pursue regime change, prior to 9/11, they simply casted in search of a solution to a problem with a little class saw. >> libertarianism was fiscally conservat
united on foreign policy either. but they're closer. my newshour colleague, margaret warner, is in washington and has our report about that. >> thanks maria. as the campaign hurtles toward election day, much of the foreign policy debate has focused on a few, deadly hours on an infamous date. the attack in benghazi on september 11th that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans has led to a raft of sharp questions, accusations and recriminations. >> there were many days that passed before we knew whether we knew if this was a spontaneous demonstration or actually whether it was a terrorist attack. how could we not have known? >> i immediately made sure, number one, we did everything we could to secure those americans who were still in harm's way and most importantly, that we would go after those who killed americans and we would bring them to justice and that's exactly what we are going to do. >> but whether the president wins reelection, or governor romney takes the office, a dizzying array of broader challenges awaits overseas. romney says he'd restore
for china policy and what we can do for foreign policy in general. it will validator system, give us the resources we need. and if we do that, not only the energy, but were way ahead of technology the demographic savers. with the best university, r&d, entrepreneurial spirit and the political system. but we've got to get through this immediate polarization. best overall going to be thinking about next tuesday on the path of fiscal cliff, but the trifecta and stimulating sharpish growth, getting on top of our debt problem and investing in the future all at the same time. i think we can do it. if we can, there's no reason to talk about american decline. >> i want students, friends, faculty, we are going to put a mic in the center aisle if you can start thinking of questions, just line up at the night. i don't own how many will take. as your thinking a lot to ask your guests one of the questions about the future, which is many ways every administration is tested, not by the things they plan to do, but the things that happen they didn't expect, the surprises. the question for all of you i
looking for food and the administration is mired in a foreign policy scandal over this terror aeu kwrabg in libya, and the race is dead even according to the "real clear politics" average, and a lot of polls show the race is dead even. this is not the position the president wanted to be in going into this november 6th election. >> nor did he think it would be. this is the worst position since any incumbent since george w. bush and maybe jimmy carter. it's the testament to his ten as a tiana lot of the money he raised and spent that it resulted in a tie. megyn: it never actually ends in a tie. we will get a result and chris stirewalt will know it before any of us knows it. he will be on the fox news decision desk tuesday night and i'll be saying, what do you know, and he'll be saying, i can't talk now. >> there is always time for you, meg. >> shall we tell them what happened back in 2010. brett and i were about to go on the air and we weren't able to call like the biggest -- anyway it wound up going into the prompter, that's how we learned as we read it it came out. >> we like to keep you
" segment. in the final presidential debate, the one on foreign policy, it was interesting it note the countries that got a mention. iran was cited 47 times, of course. israel, 34 times. and china, 32 times. it was also telling, there was only one mention each of europe and africa, and none at all of india. but i was struck by the amount of play one small country got. the one doesn't usually register on washington's foreign policy -- >> mali -- >> mali -- >> with a gdp 1% of mexico. why mali? here's the story briefly. radical islamist groups have taken control of as much as 2/3 of mali's territory, including the historic city of timbuktu. among these groups is al qaeda and the islamic magret, said to have been involved in last month's attack on the consulate in benghazi, libya. together the radical outfits haver to mmted mali. they've destroyed shrines, impose period sahria law and stoned people who come in their wake. now, mali was once considered one of the few stable democracies in africa, and mali's capital would normally have been able to counteract these insurgents. but the g
foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
and republican presidential hopeful mitt romney debated issues of foreign policy and the economy, we turn to world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author, and mit professor noam chomsky. in a recent speech, professor chomsky examined topics largely ignored or glossed over during the campaign -- from china to the arab spring, to global warming and the nuclear threat posed by israel versus iran. he spoke last month at the university of massachusetts in amherst, at any event sponsored by the center for popular economics. his talk was entitled, "who owns the world?" >> when i was thinking about these remarks, i had two topics in mind. i could not decide between them. pretty obvious ones. one topic is, what are the most important issues that we face? the second topic is, what issues are not being treated seriously or at all in the quadrennial frenzy now under way called in election? but i realize that there is no problem. it is not a hard choice. they are the same topic. there are reasons for it, which are very significant in and of themselves. i would like to return to that in a momen
on the consulate in libya is exhibit a of a failed foreign policy of leading from behind. you could see this coming for months. the people on august 145 had a meeting and said we could not withstand a coordinated attack. >> there is that and all of this sort of alarms or red lights whether it is the attack in june or whatever in terms of yurt. then stage two as to what has happened since then. it was that no one bothered to see this too niece yan guy. there is even more than that. is that the fbi did visit benghazi after the attack sometime and left. but then fast forward to last week, october 26, be foreign policy journalists go in there after people have been walking all over the place and looking at that time and they he recovered documents is that are critical to this investigation. like the fbi didn't even bother. like nobody be even cared that four americans are dead. it is a snap by investigation. four people died. you you wouldn't even see that kind of investigation in a local homicide case. >> i hope the people of the united states who really do care about our national security will unders
to be pivoting so far that he's presenting himself as obama 2008. that's what we heard in the foreign policy debate. and what was striking for me today is how often he referred to positively to the obama of 2008, and how he tried to sort of seize the mantle that obama claimed in 2008. he used the word "change" so many times. that wasn't an accident. he talked talked about how obama promised to be bipartisan. he wasn't. romney would do that. what this really shows me is that romney is trying so hard to be a sheep's in wool's clothing saying don't believe it. i'm going to be the moderate pragmatic guy. >> eliot: when you look at what he says it is the same 'ol stuff. and this is the same litany of policies that led us over the precipice in 2008. is that a fair and accurate critique? >> sure, romney is surely the greater evil here on every count, the foreign policy. he'll bring the neo-conservatives back. in policies, he's not even interested in the mild dodd-frank. the reason why he's able to get away with it, it seems to me that he he's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush
." >> this is on foreign policy. the american ambassador to libya was recently killed. syria has defended -- descended into civil war. united states sends hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid to countries around the world democracies and dictators. what should be the basic guiding principles of american foreign policies? >> fundamentally, i would have to say that freedom is something we need to encourage across the world. that me talk about christopher's stevens and what happened. his death along with three others is a tragedy, and that has been in a lot of people's thoughts and prayers. we need to get to the bottom of that, and i'm not here to speculate on who did what, but we need to find out and the american people need to know. i hope it will be transparent and can be clear so, two things will come out of it. people need to be held accountable, but also we can learn from that, so in the future if we have diplomats abroad we can ensure we are protecting them. as it relates to other countries, and there is turmoil in the middle east, from my perspective, that is one thing that we have don
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
for discussion. clinton and the eu foreign policy chief met with the kosovan present. >> clinton and ashton are touring balkan countries currently. london's police may be selling their famous new scotland yard headquarters to cut costs. they need to find over 600 million euros of savings and help the complex can fetch a large chunk of that sum. >> city police moved into the iconic building on victoria street in 1967. with staff cuts on the way, they will not need as much space. >> we will be back in one minute with more. >> stick around. we will be right back. >> welcome back. it is deja vu all over again. florida and ohio are expected to be key swing states in determining the outcome of the u.s. presidential election. >> some are saying that romney must win florida to win the race. the southern state has a high percentage of latino voters as well as senior citizens, many of home are worried about their benefits. >> polls show the candidates are neck-and-neck. >> hold on tight. irene takes me on a fast pace tour of the retirement community in her golf cart. florida is home to many retirees,

at the unemployment. take a look at where we are as a nation. look at our foreign policy. look at what just happened overseas. where was the president when that happened? i'm embarrassed. >> i'm staying behind obama and if he's listening, this is what i want him to hear. >> reporter: what? >> he should say to his voters, i can do it right or i can do it fast. do it right. four years? after all those years of -- good morning. >> reporter: colonel, did she upset you? >> if you are republican or democrat, we can still shake hands over a great breakfast. >> absolutely. see? >> reporter: a lot of people say that louden county is more divided than ever. well, here's proof that it is definitely not. 161 years ago this month, americans were killing each other, right here. >> keep in mind, this battle here was lost by the union. the confederate element, it still kind of an undercurrent. we don't think it's right. >> from an enthusiasm standpoint, i would say mitt romney's camp is perhaps a little louder, a little more voel vocal. >> reporter: really? >> but from strict numbers, i think it's even. ♪ >> some
, columnist of the post. in addition to that, today, foreign policy magazine, which is a well regarded magazine in washington, d.c., long history, they had two people. harold duron barbuh and jerone moulasasa. i'm sorry if i'm not pronouncing that right. they had gone to dubai. dubai based television to the compound to do reporting and they found in the compound stuff that our own f.b.i. didn't find. so at this point, i think that it was jake tapper of abc news wrote there is a drip, drip, drip about this. the administration set themselves up for this by blaming video in the first place. i actually am going to complain. i don't think romney brought this up enough. if he had, other reporters would have paid attention earlier. >> bob: it was smart. they found copy of "new yorker" magazine. >> dana: no, they found a letter from him. >> bob: they did? >> kimberly: you should be concerned. >> dana: dated september 11. >> bob: on the other hand i would like to see how many other consulates around the country and embassy asked for backup help. six weeks prior to the event, which nobody expect
on foreign-policy and it goes directly against that. one of the few issues the president still has a good handle on. romney has a handle on the economy, the handle on government spending. neil: what should romney do with this? i always thought romney botched it in the debates were sort of like a gift that should have been for him that he screwed up, but what does he do? >> he got a little shy when he got hit so hard on september 12 from the press reacting too soon. this will be a lot up to this is where the special interest groups or the outside groups, third-party groups come into play in making this a big issue making sure people know about it but also something you hear a lot of people talking to each other about and that is what undecided voters are going to affect them. the personal relationship they have with people. when something comes to attack on american soil at an american embassy and american people, that is a concern. that is the concern for every american. nobody wants this edition to be attacked. there was a possibility we could do something about it. neil: thank you very
campaign promise of a humble foreign policy. that phrase became a bit of a punchline, given the way that the actual events of the bush presidency unfolded. but the idea of humility, i think, is the central to a secured american conservativism. novice and not just in foreign policy, but really and everything else. conservatism is, to my mind, based on two central insights. one is the idea that is more of a temperament than an ideology. the predisposition that you're not going to tear something down until you first understand why it is built. and you don't begin with the presumption that everything that has happened before you in the past, even if it may look arbitrary to you or may not immediately make intuitive sense to you, it doesn't mean that those practices were really random or arbitrary. there may have been good reasons for them. it is worth studying those reasons before you enter a report. secondly, american conservatism is dedicated to conserving a political condition tradition. this is where traditions of all kind become complicated. american conservatism is, in many respec
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
america and the world. so we need to look at the deficit, foreign policy, also opinions on social policy. >> one of the things that i found troubling about the economist's endorsement was they cited this stimuluses as a strength of the president. all the studies that have looked at the impact of this failed stimulus policy in my view is that it did very little to on have any sustaining impact on the u.s. economy. it largely funded more government spending. and that is fundamentally the problem with barack obama looks to government to solve problems and that is the fundamental choice between these two men. and on issues of the economy and growth and issues of bringer a fair and flatter tax code to the united states, which we desperately need, there is really only one persons who views will allow us to ross per prosper as a country. >> let's look at the stimulus point. we think government should be smaller. but at times when the private sector has seized up and there is no demand, it is quite right for government to step in on to that breach. >> so your assertion is if this election was ab
administration to focus its foreign policy efforts on asia. former ambassador to iraq, chris hill said political gridlock is hurting u.s. foreign policy object is an asian policy is a good place to rebuild bipartisanship. the discussion is just under two hours. >> thank you all for being here this afternoon and welcome to gaston on georgetown company country university. we've kind for a special conversation. a conversation between top diplomats past and present, each of whom has played a significant role over the past two decades with representatives from the administration of george h.w. bush to the current administration of barack obama, our guest speakers today offered their expertise and experience as they look back on their years of service and look forward to the future of u.s.-asia relations. we offer my gratitude to georgetown's asian studies program, our school foreign service and the korea economic institute who have partnered to bring together some of our country's most respected minds on foreign policy and asia. we are deeply grateful to dr. dr. victor cha and director of asian studi
his foreign policy and so on. that's what john sununu didn't want people debating, in my view. i think he quite deliberately played that race card to change the thinking of people who may be in two minds about who to vote for, you know what, this is actually about a black man voting for a black man. >> if it was an intentional dismissal, using race in that way, it just heightens the level of sinisterness of such a comment and it belies in many ways the truth of who colin powell is. >> let's play a clip from president obama today. this is what he said about it. >> any suggestion that general powell would make such a profound statement in such an important election based on anything other than what he thought was what's going to be best for america i think doesn't make much sense. >> sununu issued a statement afterwards which i found fairly laughable. colin powell's a friend, i respect the endorsement decision he made. i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. piers morgan's question was whether colin powell should leave the party and i don't th
and the nbc/"wall street journal" in late august, the president's approval on foreign policy, 54-40 and, last week, 49-46 and the monmouth poll, 9 point advantage for obama in late set up and now a 1-point advantage last week and you don't want to send people into harm's way without knowing what is on the ground but you can move assets to the conflict and have a c-130 gunship orbiting off of begin gaza, waiting for -- benghazi and a qrf, quick rapid force into position and, have them out there and, the president says he ordered support to be given and, yet, support was not given. there are too many unanswered questions and the administration is stonewalling and the american people have a right to know. it ought to be done outside of the bounds of the political campaign and i applaud governor romney for not pressing the issue in the last debate. there was political advantage to him keeping it focused on the economy but also is good for the country the questions be raised by congress and answered by the president and the president -- >> you said could have, woof, should have in a political cont
